Defining SEN (Special Educational Needs)
The 2014 Code of Practice says that:
A person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. At compulsory school age this means he or she has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others the same age, or, has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools.
Taken from 2014 SEN Code of Practice: 0 to 15 Years
